Man theres ALOT of pearch in Green

8 posts in this topic

Went out and tried, without luck to catch some fish on Green. I know its a big lake with tons of structure but my cousin and I Poped around to different spots and all we saw was Pearch about 4-6" long we fished in 20 to 40 foot spots but didnt see anything else. We had a camera and no wonder why other fish arent hungry. Any other pointers. Wouldent Walleye or Northern move into these areas near prime time to feed? The bad thing is talking heads here are more tight lipped than the Walleye whistle.gif I'll find some eventully. Keep on poppin.

I've been seeing thirty to forty walleyes a night on my camera and its a good night to catch one or two of them crazy.gif I've tried everything possible but they want nothing to do with it. I figured with the warmer weather that they would be snappin but that wasnt the case. So who knows??? But if you wanna see fish, try and find the deepest weedlines ya can.

I have seen more walleyes than bass some days with the underwater camera. Eyehead nailed it. They are usually in the weeds!

A few times when we go out lakeviewing looking for bass on screen than camera we have been impressed with the walleye numbers.

This is in summer putting the cameras down when we would spot fish on screen.

Like one guy said after we dropshotted for bass one July day[Green Lake would be a great bass lake if you could keep walleye off line]

BlackJack, I use the Aqua-Vu Scout SRT. I rarely use it after dark unless im fishing crappies, but i'd say you can see around 15ft after dark give or take a couple feet. I've never caught a walleye after dark with it down so I usually pull it up around sunset.

With the Aqua view scout, how do you handle the direction of the camera?

The two biggest issues that I've seen with cameras is the snowstorm affect after dark and the lack of ability to control the camera.

With the Scout SRT, there is no snowstorm effect. Its as clear a picture during the day as it is at night. When I bought it they had a deal where you got there Ice Pod with it and that helps to position the camera pretty good. I think there like $15 or something like that.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
